About The Paul Merage School of Business
The Paul Merage School of Business at UC Irvine offers four dynamic MBA programs - plus PhD and undergraduate business degrees - that deliver its thematic approach to business education: sustained growth through strategic innovation. We graduate leaders with the exceptional ability to help grow their organizations through strategic innovation - supported by analytical decision-making, information technology and collaborative execution, and enhanced by a highly-personalized learning environment. In-class and on-site experiences with real-world business issues give our students the edge needed to help companies compete in today's global economy.

Six Centers of Excellence, an Executive Education program and a variety of conferences and colloquia provide numerous opportunities for students and the business community at large to enhance their education experience and update their professional expertise.

While the Merage School is relatively young, it has quickly grown to consistently rank among the top 10% of all AACSB-accredited programs through exceptional student recruitment, world-class faculty, a strong alumni network and close individual and corporate relationships. While overall rankings typically place the School among the top 50 in the US, during the past decade the School has earned Top 10 rankings both nationally and internationally for its executive MBA program, faculty, curriculum components such as IT and marketing, recruitment services, and overall value by such publications as the Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek and US News & World Report.

The Merage School combines the academic strengths and best traditions of the University of California with the cutting-edge, entrepreneurial spirit of Orange County in the heart of America's Tech Coast.
